COSE 2016 West of England Club of the Year
We are a very open and friendly Archery Club based on the edge of the Gordano Valley at The Downs School in Wraxall, North Somerset.
Our vision is to promote and develop the sport of archery and to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all.
We aim to achieve this by ensuring we have a highly motivated and professional team of coaches and officials dedicated to the principles of equitable practice.
The club is committed to providing archery as an all inclusive sport and actively promotes the sport as a Triple A sport for all the family. Triple A = All Ability Archery.
